A petition demanding that the Obama administration deport troubled pop star Justin Bieber has reached 73,450 signatures, inching close to the 100,000 needed for an official response, The Washington Times
The petition, titled, "Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card,"
"We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug-abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked.
"He is not only threatening the safety of our people, but he is also a terrible influence on our nation's youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
The petition is on the White House's "We the People" website, which encourages Americans to create petitions on issues they are passionate about.
While the anti-Bieber forces are strong, there are plenty of Bieber supporters. Another petition on the White House website implores:
"Stop Justin Bieber from getting deported. He is a human being and he makes mistakes. He does not deserve this."
But only 894 people have signed that petition.
Bieber, who was born in Canada, could have his visa revoked after being arrested in Miami Beach on suspicion of drunk driving, resisting arrest, and driving without a valid license.
